  1. Hows it going everybody?

    I have a suzuki bandit 250 1993 model, and i was wondering if anybody knew where i could get a set of twin headlights, to replace my single one?

    Ive seen a video on youtube where the guy had the twins, and they looked awesome.

    any help would be appreciated.



    cheers fingers89

  2. I'd try stores aimed primarily at streetfighters eg http://ausfr.com.au/ I wouldn't expect them to be cheap though

    For some lights on the cheap side maybe try a wreckers for stock dual headlight bikes eg speed triple/buell. I'm not sure how your results would be though.

  3. Austreetfighter and Zpower both sell twin headlight setups online (do your own search, I'm too knackered tonight :? ).
    In my experience 2nd hand original gear is WAY overpriced in comparison.

  6. If you were in Melb I could recommend a place. Now a Sydneysider will know to do so...

  7. Not sure where my brother got the twin headlights, but have posted the link to the guy who turned his into a street fighter...

    Hope it brings you some inspiration, and maybe some contacts to source parts...

  10. When I converted my GS500F to an E, I fitted twin headlights.

    I bought them from the UK's streetfighterstore.co.uk.

    ** sorry about no hyperlink, but it seems this board has some 5 posts lunacy... **

    They were much cheaper than anywhere else that I could find (including locally). They are a good quality, all-metal item - and come with the H4 plug which means that you should be able to just plug them straight in.

    I didn't bother with any of the mounting brackets (which all seem ludicrously overpriced IMO). I just went down to the wreckers and picked up some cheek-pieces and ground, drilled and painted them to suit.

    I'm more than happy with them - they provide plenty of light with the bulbs that come with the unit. But you can always upgrade the bulbs later, if you feel the need to see through time! :p

  11. Sounds like you're after "dominator" style lights:

    You can get some through Ben Shaw's Extreme Creations in Sydney - this guy is a world-class streetfighter guru of epic proportions. Good luck going into his shop and coming out with only one purchase! :grin:
